Taken from IMDB: Bob Blake and his boys arrive at Joe Jackson's ranch to find him missing. While Slim cheats Dusty out of his money using ventriloquism and marked cards, Blake tries to find Jackson. Learning that Thorne and his gang hold him prisoner, he and his men trail them. When Thorne's gang gets the drop on them, Slim puts his ventriloquism to work.
This is much better than I was expecting it to be.
Not an outstanding classic, of course, but an enjoyable b-western regardless.
That song certainly ends with a bang!

Enjoyable all-black western (1939)
This surprisingly enjoyable B-Western is the middle of three films featuring Herb Jeffries as the Bronze Buckaroo. It, along with the other two --Two-Gun Man from Harlem (1938) and Harlem Rides the Range (1939), are directed by Richard Kahn. Herb Jeffries was the first black singing cowboy. His baritone, along with the singing of the Four Tones, adds to the pleasure of watching and listening to the film.
